Discover Mulvarra House - a new workshop and retreat centre on the River Barrow

Running workshops and retreats year round

Mulvarra House is a new workshop and retreat centre located in the village of St Mullins on the River Barrow. We run weekend workshops and retreats primarily in the areas of yoga/meditation, traditional arts and crafts, and food.  Located right on the border of Carlow, Kilkenny, and Wexford, we are an hour and a half away from Dublin. Waterford and Kilkenny are practically on our doorstep.

Your hosts, Tim and Linda, have created a wonderfully peaceful and relaxed environment at Mulvarra. While at Mulvarra, you will get to experience a truly magical landscape which surrounds the ancient monastic site of St Mullins, the jewel of the River Barrow. Whether you come to Mulvarra  to practice yoga, unleash your  creativity, paint, meditate, or just stay and rest and relax, you will come away feeling replenished and revived.

If you are looking for a weekend yoga retreat for 10 to 14 people this is the place to go. Beautiful countryside over looking the river Barrow with lots of ancient ruins and walks. The yoga studio is a separate space which adds to the experience. Tim and Linda provided us with “mouth watering food “ and could not do enough to make our weekend enjoyable!

I have just come down to earth after a magical weekend yoga retreat in Mulvarra House. It is my second retreat in Mulvarra and it will not be the last. Everything was perfect from the incredibly peaceful yoga studio, to the most comfortable bed, to the heart warming vegetarian food. The hosts Tim and Linda make Mulvarra house what it is, a truly magical space. Thank you so much ?

Restorative and cosy stay in a beautiful, rural setting. The retreat was filled with epic food, great company and of course, loads of yoga in the peaceful studio. Seriously, this retreat centre is one to watch!
